XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens with UV Filter Kit (Black) Overview

Complementing the lens itself, the black FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the sleek wide-angle prime with a 49mm UV filter.

FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens (Black)

Continuing FUJIFILM's series of compact, portable primes, the black XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR is a 24mm-equivalent wide-angle lens, well-suited to landscape, nature, and architectural shooting. Its f/2.8 maximum aperture balances size and speed, and is suitable for working in available lighting conditions while also limiting the overall size and weight of the lens for everyday use. The optical design features two aspherical elements to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super EBC coating is also used to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in bright and backlit conditions. Complementing the optics is a stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, which provides quick and especially quiet focusing performance. Additionally, the lens is weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

Prime wide-angle lens is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 24mm equivalent focal length.
Moderately bright f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in available light conditions and also helps to maintain a compact form factor.
Two aspherical elements limit distortion and spherical aberration in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super EBC coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, affords fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and video applications.
The lens body incorporates weather sealing to protect against dust and moisture, and to enable worry-free use in inclement conditions and freezing temperatures as low as 14°F.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Chiaro 49mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 49mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission
Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Polished Optical Glass
Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top Knurling
Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.

XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens with UV Filter Kit (Black) Reviews

Optically Superb

Superb 2.8/24- buy one! I use a 49/52 step-up ring so I can fit my 52mm filters. (All Hoya HD's from B&H). Hood? I use an xc15-45 hood. Perfect match and fit. I'm a happy man!񔰀

Favorite Lens

By Shelby

I never expected a 24mm to become my favorite lens, but here we are. I owned the f1.4 version prior to this one, and I prefer the f2.8 for portability. The only noticeable compromise is bokeh. But the image quality is stellar; the best micro contrast I've seen. This is the best Fuji lens for travel, environmental portraits, street and pets. If you're looking for a landscape or astro lens, go wider with the Samyang 12mm.

Great in sunny outdoor

By Jeremiah

This lens is conveniently compact and light. When paired with the xpro3, it makes a great travel setup. Outdoor sunny conditions gave excellent results - excellent details, contrasty, free of distortions. However indoor shots are not that good. This lens is not very good at large aperture settings.

This lens is soft! Wide open, even the center is soft and fuzzy. Stopped down to f8, it becomes acceptable. Away from the center, it is always soft - texture is fuzzy. I put this on a brand new xpro3 so, it is not the camera (I hope). Images are just awful. I took a few shots also with a nikon z20mm/f2.8; day and night difference. I probably will try the 50mm/f1 or the 16mm/f1.4 and hope for the best. This is only good as a beater lens.

Another Fuji compact prime gem

By Matt
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-29

If you're a fan of Fuji's compact prime line of lenses like I am, you'll appreciate this lens. It has the same build quality, image quality, snappy AF, and overall value that you get from the other lenses in the line with a nice wide angle of view at a very affordable price. It's small and nimble so it can literally fit in a pocket and it has weather sealing. Like most of Fuji's lenses, the optics are phenomenal. I can get pretty close to my subject with this lens and everything seems crisp and clear. Is it a super fast lens at f/2.8? No. But unless you really need to extra light or background blur that the f/1.4 offers, this lens should serve you just fine.

Nice and Versatile Wide Angle for X-E4

By Nayoon
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-15

This lens both looks and feels great on my X-E4 body. Autofocus is very silent and fast, making it perfect for taking quick snapshots during travel. The short focal length together with the minimum aperture at 1/22 makes handheld slow-shutter photography possible even without any stabilization or ND filter. When I bring it as the only lens during trips it has proven versatile enough for landscape, food, interior, and environmental portraits. I highly recommend this lens for users who prefer portability.

Solid Lens

Like all Fujifilm lenses this one doesn't disappoint. IQ is fantastic and the size and weight make this a perfect everyday carry.

Great travel lens. Small, light. Sharp, especially on the new X-T5.

Yes, you can use a polarizer with the hood but it may be difficult to rotate the filter with the hood on. I would recommend taking the hood off for easy rotation.

How does sharpness compare to the 16mm 1.4? How does that lens stopped down to f/2.8 compare to this wide open?
Asked by: Brendan
While I personally believe the optical quality of the FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Lens would be superior compared to the FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens, I have not seen any comprehensive testing of the two lenses side-by-side comparing the sharpness of the different apertures you mention above. That being said, from my brief usage with the FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens, I think it has great optical performance and as a great option for the price compared to the 16mm f/1.4 lens. However, do note that you may purchase the lens, and if you test it and it does not work for your planned usage needs, you would have 30 days from the original purchase date to return the lens for an exchange or refund.
